Oct 26, 2013 Full story: CBS News 24

Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., said the problems with Obamacare go far beyond a faulty website in the weekly GOP address on Saturday, calling for a delay of the law's requirement for individuals to purchase health insurance or pay a fine.

Even Glenn Becks "The Blaze" came to the same conclusion - the numbers are noit factual coming from the right regarding the cost of the web site;

"
While the federal website to signup for Obamacare was riddled with errors and had a rocky rollout, it didnít cost $634 million to build.

The eye-popping supposed pricetag gained traction Thursday after technology website Digital Trends compared it to the estimate released by the government contractor, which was $541 million less.

CGI Federal announced in 2011 that it had been awarded a $93.7 million contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to build the federal health insurance exchange, healthcare.gov , which formally launched on Oct. 1, 2013."

Some say the web site problems are partly by design because they wanted to give applicants the subsidized price first. They wanted to keep the actual costs of the INSURANCE policies away from the applicants so it would be harder to compare or realize what is actually being paid out. That's why the registration process and not just a site with facts and a process to figure out on your own what a policy would cost.

The problem is COSTS. The COST of the providers and insurance companies. It's not a who or how it will be paid for problem. The ACA is basically an INSURANCE or a who will pay for bill.

It's far too embarrassing for them.

There's already a grace period for fines, thanks to the goverment's understanding that the website is having problems.

Wackjob reTHUGlicans want to find more excuses to trash the program; however, you can call in to register, go to various community organizations to register, and in non-red states with functioning governments, go to the STATE website to register.

The whole 'crisis' is yet another partisan attack on Obamacare, as is the asinine "investigation" by the House of reTHUGlicans.

Obama care is all about socialistic revolution and means to control the private life of each and every American and to buy votes of poor and sick of the world by making them dependent on Obama food stamps, free phone and free Obama care. In fact, tens of millions of Americans will lose their private health care and will be left out to die with no health care because of lack of doctors and hospitals. The history books will record the unbelievable historic phenomena in 2013 in which the 306 million American people was transformed by one dictator Obama to become the non-American people of baggers, parasites and humiliated slaves that sacrificed their health, freedom, liberty, money, savings and dignity to anti-American foreign agenda of one man Obama and his deceitful media which vowed to transform America to non American country of the poor and sick of the world. The American s proved to be bunch of greedy and lazy people who refuse to work and pay taxes that preferred to live by food stamps and free Obama phone from the government for lifetime in return for their loyalty to the dictator and keeping him in power. The humiliated liberal Americans agree to forsake their health, their liberty and freedom and their money, including their children and grandchildren and to go like sheep to the slaughterhouse because they lost any hope, goal and purpose in their life. Obama was able to divide the GOP into spineless cowards called RINOs led by John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell that fight and besmirch the conservatives and Tea Party and defined them as bunch of disrespectful terrorists, radicals and anarchists. Nevertheless, the conservatives are going soon unite out of the failed and broken GOP to create new Party of Freedom for the conservatives, Tea Party and Libertarians who refuse to bow to the dictator Obama and to refuse to lose their freedom, dignity and health, life time savings to the deceitful tyranny of fake, phony and fraudulent Obama regime and his ugly media of crooks.

The GOP is on the rocks and its demise is largely self inflicted. If there's any glimmer of success to Obamacare, they're dogmeat. In California, the GOP does not even campaign at all except for a few gerrymandered enclaves near L.A. and we're 20% of the electoral college. Presently, the GOP is divided, has no recognisable leadership and no issues whatsoever except opposition to Obama and his programs.

This is definitely more than a website problem.

For starters and the most basic problem is that this is NOT a health care bill/law it is an INSURANCE bill/law. INSURANCE is NOT CARE. Actual use of an Obama Care health INSURANCE policy will incur the COSTs of deductibles, co pays and non covered items AFTER paying monthly premiums.

The second biggest problem is COST. Ironically COSTs are the problem with the exorbitant price of actual care and insurance. NOT who and how care and premiums will be paid for.

COSTs not only include excessive price gouging bills but they also include taxes. The big example happening right now is that many of the applicants/successfully enrollees signed up for Medicaid and not insurance. Medicaid will be funded by TAXES. More Medicaid enrollees than expected means higher taxes.

Don't be fooled or distracted by 'the website'. It's the 900 page bill that turned into a 9000 page law that is THE problem. The COSTs of actual care and insurance created the problem. NOT the question of who and how it would be paid for.

The corruption of America is slowly coming to light. Half the people on disability are faking it. 30% of the EIT is fraudulent and the IRS does not know how to stop it. Just two examples of the waste and stealing. So progressives, even if you win tens of millions of others will learn the system and are learning the system. We will join you. There are many ways to win. Bringing the economy to a thud is one of them.

Seventeen trillion in debt and counting is Obama's implosion. You might recall that the Republicans took the House in 2010 and kicked Pelosi out of the Speaker's job. The pendulum will swing back to the right, probably in 2014.

We expect the house to swing back to democrats. A recent poll showed more Americans believe democrats should be running both houses of congress. That's what happens when the boner/mooch mcconnell agenda is to be the party of no.

Not only are your posts toxic, but detrimental to your own mental health. Get an evaluation, maybe 'Obamacare' will cover it, as I doubt you're gainfully employed. Insane folks might not be in group homes, under specialized care, but I doubt you would have passed a background check.

As for the results of your so-called 'poll'- please cite the source. Anyone can make up any old crapolla.

so why are you on he public dole/ we all know you are stupid as all get out, but you could work a few minimum wage jobs to pay your own way, if you weren't so lazy. or are you too stupid for even that level of employment?

your posts would suggest the later...

Why go any further when the beginning of your post is so insane? You're a born liar and propagandist, to say the least.
